THE onset of the darker night can be a cue for hibernation instincts to emerge.
Warming suppers and a glass of something to help them down are the creature comforts that make winter bearable – it’s something the Danish call ‘hygge’.

That’s why it’s worth putting some finer wines to one side for those nights when you give yourself an extra special treat.
A glass of something out of the ordinary acquired by spending a bit more than usual provides a nice focal point for those nights in – and also gives you something to talk about outside of the stresses of work
